SIN - Scars Internet News - projected art display 09/20/05 for a performance art show live in Chicago by Janet Kuypers
SIN (Scars Internet News) is a performance art show Janet Kuypers live in Chicago. This 09/20/05 show contained a series of her poems (all making fun of strange news stories) set to a news beat for background music, with artwork displayed on a computer monitor to coincide with her readings. This film is of the main artwork that corresponded with her writings, which consists primarily of the news images for titles of each of the news stories - well, of the poems - that were read. There were also images of things that coincided with the individual poems to these news image frames as well.. Because this was a stripped-down performance art show, Janet Kuypers didn’t even have a microphone for this show, so she set it up towards the side of the hall for her performance, where there was a large couch that people could sit on to feel like they were at home watching a news broadcast on their television. So she played the usual news-broadcast noise and had a light typewriter noise tapping in the background while she read these news poems for her audience.
